Civil Site Dewatering


Civil Site Dewatering

Civil Site Dewatering Equipment

Full civil site dewatering and leachate pumping during civil works. As part of the delicate civil works of a redundant landfill facility that bordered a waterway, NPE were approached by the engineering department to assess the requirements and develop a pumping solution that would ensure total containment and discharge of the leachate water.

NPE supplied various hire pumps with telemetry controls and 450mm HDPE (poly) pipeline.

NPE hire pumps for civil site dewatering to reduce or remove water on and below ground water. Although it is often a factor that is ignored until site flooding occurs, water management is a crucial aspect of any civil construction activity.

The team at Taft Engineering and the associated contractors and developers were intelligent enough to plan for site dewatering activities and as a result have produced a more productive and environmentally safe worksite.

Stringent environmental controls on this site, as with most nowadays, meant that the containment and discharge of leachate water with the potential to be environmentally harmful was critical. We are pleased to say that the project was a complete success with no spills occurring and the management of water on site carried out to the highest standard with the client extremely happy with the outcome.


“NPE provided a fit for purpose and cost effective temporary pumping and pipeline solution to help us manage storm water and runoff during our landfill construction activities. NPE took the time to understand our problem and provide a tailored pumping and pipeline system to our situation. NPE was quick to mobilise an experienced team of personnel to install and commission the system, they were a capable self-managed team that understood our time constraints, but actively got on with job safely . The NPE team were flexible enough to accommodate minor design changes to the pipeline system during installation. Overall we were very happy with the system and the level of follow up service NPE has provided”. David Taft – Taft Engineering
